Dubai, the apolitical city

The Washington Post has a long article today on the lack of politics in Dubai. Nothing new uncovered, but still worth a look. Some of it is the lack of rights for low-paid expat workers, some of it is about how the focus on growth has meant citizens themselves are a minority, some of it is about the availability of alcohol and prostitution.

H/T @SultanAlQassemi, who is well worth following.
